You meet alot of people in your life. There are some that you might not talk to all the time or might not see for years but they have that special place in your heart. I met Doris shortly after I moved to Warren,Pa. In 1993. We worked together at the Warren Pet Shop. We had such fun together.She was my first Best Friend in Warren. She made me feel special and at home here. She made my family feel special. She was so kind,loving, and put others first before herself. I will never forget you Doris. Thank you for your friendship and love to me and my family. You are together again with your husband. R.I.P. I love you Friend!
